Watercolor with Jennifer Bentson and the Yosemite Conservancy

Discover your inner artist in this watercolor class with Jennifer Bentson-Gebel. 

Looking to learn watercolor basics? Curious about how to capture the curves and playful light of flowing water, or how to mix a series of greens that do justice to Yosemite’s spring leaves and meadows? This class is for you!

In this four-hour class, artist Jennifer Bentson takes an individualized approach to teaching watercolor. Whether you’re looking for general tips or have specific questions, she’ll tailor her instruction to your level and needs, and she will guide you through a day of learning and practicing techniques that will help you achieve results on paper. As you paint specific scenes and subjects, you’ll also have plenty of time to observe and find inspiration in a magnificent setting: Yosemite Valley.
